Nepouite With Quartz
Miniature, 4.1 x 3.8 x 2.9 cm
Loma Peguera, Bonao, Monsenor Nouel province, Dominican Republic
Vividly green crystals, to .5 cm across, of the rare nickel, magnesium, silicate, nepouite are associated with tiny clusters of colorless quartz. Never seen one for sale before, so I bought it, simple as that. Its a rare, pretty nickel mineral that doesn't cost a lot....and is from a neat locale. I wish I could get more!
